Linear Programming Model, Resource Optimization

Abstract [English]

This paper studied the optimization of resources with the aid of linear' programming model in Steve Shoe Production Centre (SSPC), Enugu. The Linear programming model is a complex mathematical tool used for solving managerial decision problems. From the researcher's observation, Steve Shoe Production Centre depended completely on trial and error method of decision making which often yielded suboptimal results. This gap brought about the need to amongst others demonstrate how the linear programming model developed in this study can assist SSPC Enugu to optimize its resources for effective output decisions. Review of related literature was performed. The findings show that the linear programming model developed by the researcher is workable for optimal results in Steve Shoe Production Centre, Enugu.
